Twill Double Saddle Blanket Navajo Weaving : Historic : PC 85
Those who learn and master the very difficult style of Twill weaving are in a class by themselves. A Twill weave yields a different pattern on each side. Some weavers even weave a different design on each side. This outstanding Twill weave is from our private collection.
It is an incredible early example - woven in the 1880s - on an outdoor upright loom. This wonderful Double Saddle Blanket was brought to life using hand-carded, hand spun, hand aniline-dyed Merino wool.
Tiny vertical lines over a band of natural colored wool alternate with solid red diamond twill bands different dividing designs. This is an exquisite piece - in color, condition, and quality.
